Note: The strongest and securist parts of Japanese castles, these tower-like structures were constructed both within other buildings and free-standing and were sometimes located within an inner compound called a "honmaru". They could exist alone or connected to other structures of the same type. For these types of fortification structures in western European castles, use "keeps".

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... De sterkste en veiligste gedeelten van Japanse kastelen. Deze torenachtige constructies staan binnen andere gebouwen of apart. Soms bevonden ze zich op een binnenhof dat men ���honmaru' noemde. Ze konden vrijstaan of verbonden zijn met andere constructies van hetzelfde type. Gebruik ���donjon' voor dit soort vestingwerken in West-Europese kastelen.
